Background Discussion

• Mr. Caleb Grimes, Grimes Goebel Grimes Hawkins Gladfelter & Galvano, P.L., agent for the property owner, is requesting approval of a Preliminary Site Plan for an approximately 201,000 square foot commercial / retail shopping center and 118-room hotel (138,651 square feet of commercial/retail and 61,380 square feet hotel) on approximately 33.12 acres.

• The Imperial Lakes Commercial project is located south of Buffalo Road and east of I-75 and is commonly known as 9680 Buffalo Road, Palmetto. 

• The parcel is located in the ROR (Retail/Office/Residential) future land use category which allows a floor area ratio (FAR) of 0.35; the project proposes a FAR of 0.14.

• Special Approval is required because the project is located adjacent to an interstate connector (Moccasin Wallow Road) designated as Entranceway.

• No Specific Approvals are requested.

• Surrounding uses include single family residential common area (Regency Oaks Subdivision) and Imperial Lakes Golf Course.

• The Applicant has voluntarily proffered a Schedule of Uses (attached as Exhibit “B” to the zoning ordinance) specifying and limiting the uses within this development.

• Water, Sewer and Reclaimed water are available to serve the project.  The utilities are located in Buffalo Road and/or Moccasin Wallow Road.

• 25% open space is required (the project is within the Entranceway) and approximately 40% is provided.

• Staff recommends approval with Stipulations.

• On January 12, 2017, by a vote of 6 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval. Mr. Conerly was absent.
